Sony Creative Center Tamachi Office


We designed the interior for the satellite offices of Sony’s design department. The requirements for this project were to set up a base in an independent location on the first floor of an office building in Tamachi while ensuring a highly confidential security area for handling the latest designs. At the same time, an open office was necessary for the space to be inviting for visitors during exhibitions and events.



To satisfy these requirements we planned to have private rooms for each team scattered around the four-sided lighting floor. As a result, we created a space that is consistent while gradually increasing security from the public area that invites visitors. The courtyard-like plaza in the center of the floor is designed to provide a clear line of sight so that people can feel the light from outside no matter where they are, while the main layout has been arranged with easy access to each private room.

The project site, a new rental building, had a skeleton ceiling and bare steel OA floor. New elements were added and subtracted to balance with the existing condition. The new materials, such as carefully finished wood wool cement board, grey-stained flooring and black fittings, harmonize with the tone of the existing building. By treating old and new materials in a uniform state, existing elements come into the limelight, and new elements fit in seamlessly. The space itself is neutral, and the colors and textures of the materials themselves are used as the keynote, creating a base that accepts future changes. The aim was to create a sense of openness and comfort by taking advantage of the view while at the same time using the minimum number of necessary elements.
